Food safety and quality issues are receiving a great deal of attention today. Never has the safety of the food supply come under such scrutiny. Consumers are becoming better educated and more demanding about food-related issues and regulators are increasingly active in safeguarding food products. Organic fruits and vegetables are different from conventionally grown fruits and vegetables because it is either grown under a natural system of agriculture, without the use of synthetic fertilizers.
